June 13th National Weed Your Garden Day

Okay, so you planted you garden… flowers or veggies, whatever it doesn’t matter. The thing you will find grow fastest are the weeds. (No not that kind of weed) So, unless you want a garden of weeds you will need to weed it!

I guess there are some pretty weeds. Maybe there are even a few that have uses (Though I doubt it) but they definitely will destroy whatever else you have planted. Isn’t it interesting that we call our new found friend “weed” and nickname it for something absolutely useless! Oh well.

Weeding your garden does have benifits. It is calming and relaxing if done right. That means don’t start weeding 2 months after you’ve planted your garden because you will lose that calming effect. You may be litterally lost in the weeds.

It is also a great way to teach children about gardening and get them interested in planting their own sometime in the future. There is nothing that compares to watching a plant grow, something that you planted and cared for. It is somewhat like watching a child grow itself.

So if you are responsible enough to plant a garden be repsonsible enough to weed it! You will also need to water it and keep animals out of it that might cause damage or even eat your newest friends.

How to celebrate – First, start by planting a garden! Next weed your garden. Make sure you know the difference between your plant and a weed.
